Hi experts:

This used to be rather easy for me in SBS 2003. But, I can't seem to find how to make a new GPO. One help menu mentioned making one from a starter GPO. When I use MMC and add Group Policy Object Editor, it gets me nowhere except back to the global group policy.

SBS 2008 Standard

Thanks in advance.

It is really a text file..  Most of them that are out there are  a ADM file which really is a registry preference file that you can import into GPEDIT.MSC or Group Polocy MMC..

This guy has a lot of great information on GPO..  http://gpanswers.com

HTH,

Kent

Its a builtin tool in windows 2008, you need to type GPMC.msc in run or you can find in administrative tools.

Starter GPo is the new settings in windows 2008 to create multiple GPO using similar baseline.

Thanks to both of you. I actually was able to create a new GPO even though it was a bit confusing for a non guru in GPO.

My attempted goal at doing a script for the users failed anyway whether it was in the new script for users or the already created Logon scripts in Group Policy. Rather than ask about that here, which I think is a bit off topic, I am going to make a new question.
